School board to consider amendments to Annandale boundary plan

When the Fairfax County School Board meets July 28 to vote on the Annandale Regional Planning Study, it will consider the following amendments:

Mason District board member Sandy Evans will propose an amendment to delay action on the boundary issue until the board’s Sept. 22 meeting. If that amendment passes, the others won’t be considered.

Both Evans and at-large board member Tina Hone plan to offer an amendment to retain the eastern portion of the Wakefield Forest Elementary School attendance area at Poe Middle School and Annandale High School.

Patty Reed of the Providence District will offer an amendment to not move the Pine Spring Elementary School attendance island to the new school under construction at the Lacey site, as proposed in the FCPS staff recommendation. The amendment calls for the affected students to be assigned to Pine Spring Elementary School, Jackson Middle School, and Falls Church High School.

Evans plans to propose that students in the Columbia Pines subdivision be assigned to Glasgow Middle School and Stuart High School, effective with rising sixth and ninth-graders in the 2012-13 school year. Under the staff recommendation, those students would be assigned to Poe Middle School and Falls Church High School.

Another amendment to be offered by Evans would retain students in the western section of the Bren Mar Park Elementary School attendance area (west of I-395) at Annandale High School.

Evans also plans to introduce an amendment to retain Barcroft Knolls, Overlook Knolls, and Dean Subdivision in the Belvedere Elementary School attendance area.

For more details on some of these issues, see the blog reports on the school board work session and hearing.
